What statute says you do not have to pay for debt that is marked

This answer was rated:

What statute says you do not have to pay for debt that is marked as disputed?
There is no such statute. A debt that is disputed as to actual liability must be liquidated by the court. Typically, a creditor notified of a debtor's bankruptcy would file a proof of claim, the debtor would object -- and the court would determine the actual liability.

Hope this helps.
